Water Gardens and Their History - Peter May
From a tiny suburban pond to the Chatsworth Cascade, Peter will show that water has always been important in gardens.
The Henleaze Garden Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the Main Hall, St Monica's, Cote Lane, Westbury-on-Trym. Meetings start at 7:30pm and members can enter the Hall from 7:00pm. Car parking is available on site.
Meetings feature expert speakers, who sometimes bring plants for sale. In December, there is a Christmas Event and in the summer, the July and August meetings are replaced by garden visits and the Club holds one or two garden parties. In addition, two residential trips are planned for 2018 - one to East Angia (which is now fully booked) and the other to the Lake District with a visit to the RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park on the way back.
The Club publishes a quarterley Newsletter giving news and details of events and "Garden Club News" is emailed to members each month.
Guests are welcome to come to meetings other than The Christmas Event. The cost is £5 per meeting.
